Panoramic view of campus, Fall 1923. This view of the Oregon Agricultural College campus was taken from the heating plant's newly built smokestack by Thompson & Watson, photographers, of Eagle Rock, California.

The fourth edition (February 2000) of the Oregon State University Archives and Records Management Handbook is one volume of the OSU Policies and Procedures Manual. This version of the Archives Handbook completely supercedes previous editions published in April 1987, March 1993, and April 1996.
Unlike previous handbooks, this edition does not contain the entire OSU Records Retention and Disposition Schedule. In order to make the schedule more user friendly, and based upon feedback from several departmental records officers, the handbook includes the 94 most frequently used records schedule dispositions. The entire records retention schedule is available via the University Archives Website or in hard copy form from the University Archives (541-737-2165; Archives@oregonstate.edu). OSU's records schedule is a customized version of Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 166-475, which covers records at all Oregon University System campuses and offices. OAR 166-475 was approved on November 1, 1999 and expires on November 1, 2004.
The handbook will be periodically updated as policies and procedures of the OSU Archives and Records Management Program change and evolve. The handbook is also available via the University Archives Web site at the URL above.
